Today was the longest time I have EVER sat on the Metro Rail. My short little 20 minute commute turned into 1 hour and 15 mins. Why you ask? There was a cracked train rail on the line that I was on, but about 20 stops away from where I was and it still had an effect on the entire line as trains were just sitting at each station waiting for the problem to be resolved.
I truly understand that things happen – but why must they always happen when I am in a hurry? I wonder how many people have been fired over Metro Madness – not having an understanding supervisor like I do that say “some things are out of your control”. I wonder how many times people have gotten the side eye or reprimanded when they said that there were Metro delays.
Do you live in the DMV area? If so, share your Metro Madness story with me….

Can I just tell you that I LOVE CRAB! I could eat crab all day, every day and NEVER get tired of it. This is one great thing about living in Maryland – there is no shortage of crab! Every time I think about moving to the west coast I cringe at the thought of no more crab.
Since I love crab so much I finally decided it was time that I learned how to make crab cakes and thanks to my fiancee’s mom, I now have it nailed down and can make them any time we want!
Side bar: What is the true plural of crab? Is it crab or crabs? I have not quite figured this out yet and have searched in many dictionaries. This came up from watching Deadliest Catch – it seemed that they never said crabs.
My truest love of crab is the whole blue crab! I love the picking to get what some people call “that little bit of meat”. That is my favorite form and with my special “crab dip”, it is ON!
I have recently become fond of lump crab soup from a DC Food Truck, Feelin Crabby. Their soup is to die for! I literally stalk the truck just to get to soup. The crab slider are greatness but the soup….. WOW.
Crab legs are much meatier than the whole crab and I like them as well. As you can see, I like crab(s) any way that I can get them. My favorite place to get crab legs or whole crab(s) is the DC Warf.
If you are in the DMV, what is your favorite place to get crab(s)?
